>Versailles boys win road thriller against Russia Saturday night 63-62


The Tigers were hyped up against Russia and played one of their best games of the year.

Though they battled back and forth all night, Russia could never take much of a lead, while the Tigers would have an eight point lead in the first half. Russia battled back and went in at half tied.

The third quarter was more of the same as Versailles had a one point lead after three.

In the fourth quarter the lead would go back and forth. With both teams in double bonus, Versailles seemed to keep fouling Russia and they built a two point lead.

Versailles took the ball down the court and Zach Niekamp hit a three to put the Tigers up by one with 7.1 seconds left.

Russia drove down the court and missed a shot, and rebounded, got a shot off, was hard to tell if time had expires before the shot got off, but it missed and the Tigers got the win.
